V. Time to Read

1. Read the story “The Luncheon” and say what you think of the lady’s eating habits.

The Luncheon*

Part One

… So we came to Foyot’s restaurant. I was startled when the menu was brought, for the prices were much higher than I had expected. But she reassured me, “I never eat anything for luncheon”, she said. “I never eat more than one thing. I think people eat too much nowadays. A little fish, perhaps. I wonder if they have any salmon”.

* luncheon - formal lunch

Well, it was early in the year for salmon, but I ordered it for my guest. The waiter asked her if she would have something while it was being cooked.

“No”, she answered, “I never eat more than one thing. Unless you have a little caviar. I never mind caviar”.

My heart sank a little. I knew I could not afford either salmon or caviar, but I couldn’t tell her that. I told the waiter to bring caviar. For myself I chose the cheapest dish on the menu and that was a mutton chop.

“I think you are unwise to eat meat”, she said. “I don’t know how you can work after eating heavy things like chops. I never overload my stomach”.

Then came the question of drink.

“I never drink anything for luncheon”, she said.

“I don’t drink either”, I answered quickly.

“Except white wine”, she continued as if I had not spoken. “It is wonderful for the digestion. My doctors don’t let me drink anything except champagne”. I ordered half a bottle and mentioned casually that my doctor had absolutely forbidden me to drink champagne.

“What are you going to drink, then?”


She ate the caviar and she ate the salmon. I wondered what the bill would come to.

Part Two

When my mutton chop arrived, she said:

“I see that you have a habit of eating a heavy luncheon. I’m sure it’s a mistake. Why don’t you follow my example and just eat one thing? I’m sure you feel much better then. I never eat anything for luncheon. Just a bite, never want more than that. I can’t eat anything more unless they have some of those giant asparagus. It would be a pity to leave Paris without eating them”.

My heart sank. I had seen them in the shops. And I know that they are horribly expensive. The waiter said that they had some so large, so splendid, so tender that it was a marvel.

“I’m not in the least hungry”, my guest sighed, “but if you don’t mind having some asparagus”.

I ordered them. We waited for the asparagus to be cooked.

Panic seized me. It was not a question now how much money I should have left for the rest of the month, but whether I had enough to pay the bill.

At last she finished the asparagus.

“Coffee?” I said.

“Yes, just an ice cream and coffee”, she answered. It didn’t matter to me now, so I ordered coffee for myself and ice cream and coffee for her.

“You know, here’s one thing I absolutely believe in, she said”, as she ate the ice cream. “One should always get up from a meal feeling one could eat a little more”.

“Are you still hungry?” I asked with horror. “Oh, no, I’m not hungry. I don’t eat luncheon. I have a cup of coffee in the morning and then dinner, but I never eat more than one thing for luncheon”.

Then a terrible thing happened. The waiter came up to us with a large basket full of huge peaches. Peaches were not in season then. God knows what they cost, but my guest absent-mindedly took one.

“You see, you’ve filled your stomach with a lot of meat and you can’t eat any more. But I’ve just had a snack and I shall enjoy a peach”.

When I paid the bill, I had the whole month before me and not a penny in my pocket.

“Follow my example”, she said as we were walking out of the restaurant, “and never eat more than one thing for luncheon”.

“I’ll do better than that”, I answered. “I’ll eat nothing for dinner today”.

(Adapted from “The Luncheon”by W. Somerset Maugham)
